ITP’s green guide goes global
The International Tourism Partnership’s (ITP) comprehensive guide detailing the basic steps towards “greening” hotel operations is now available in Arabic, Portuguese and Vietnamese in addition to the already existing language versions in English, Mandarin, French, Japanese and Spanish.
With the tourism industry representing one in every 12 jobs worldwide and 9% of global GDP, hotels are now more than ever at the forefront of making a significant, and increasingly visible, impact in their operating markets.
Going Green is a comprehensive guide for hotels of all shapes and sizes across the world – whether the property is a lodge in the Amazon, a boutique hotel in Paris or a luxury resort in Dubai. It is structured in six parts, covering the essential steps to a more sustainable operational model across all the main functions of a hotel property including policy & framework, staff training and awareness, environmental management and destination protection.
